Published on

Everyone loves to shake a stick at the healthcare industry for being backward. Fact is there is no lack of technology or data in healthcare.
Biggest challenge for healthcare providers is to identify what questions to ask the data. My team has implemented over 75 enterprise data warehouse projects in US healthcare industry. At the annual Seattle Code Camp, we discussed some of the examples of how data is used in the healthcare industry for compliance reporting (BI) and predictive analytics.
These slides are from Seattle Code Camp 2016, shares technologies, concepts and ideas for data science in the US healthcare industry.
